gun laws, but yet you still had the tragedy in connecticut. so democrats just have to seize it. they have to move the this very quickly. congress is going to be going on a two week recess, and then democrats are going to have to move this bill and i think move it quickly or it could get weaker as it goes along, and then, of course, the president's going to have to get involved and push the house to do something. jon: also worth noting in newtown where the shooting took place the application for gun permits jumped significantly in the weeks and months after the shooting. so it sounds like the senate is just maybe far left or somewhat to the left of the population op this thing they're trying -- on this thing they're trying to get passed. >> the key is going to be the background checks. if schumer can get a republican, they're going to be able to claim victory. but if they don't get the background checks, democrats were calling that the sweet spot of this gun violence movement. and it's going to be a tough spot for the gun control activists. do they support a bill that is relativ
